Peugeot is introducing a new limited edition 1,2-litre Active 96kW THP six speed manual to the already impressive 3008 SUV range.
The limited edition will be offered exclusively on the Peugeot 3008 1,2-litre Active, which will display a "Limited Edition" badge.
The 1,2-litre Active offers the best of both worlds with outstanding engine efficiency and sporty styling. It brings advanced technology, a unique driving experience, an impressive interior as well as increased passenger and luggage space for a reasonable R369 900, making it one of the most competitive SUVs in its segment. In keeping with the 3008 SUV range, the 1,2-litre Active Limited Edition offers extremely generous specification levels.
Included are 17" wheels, rear parking sensors, automatic emergency braking and dual zone climate control. Superior quality materials surround a classy modern interior layout with lots of high-tech clean lines and premium touches.
The innovative new i-Cockpit includes a multi-function steering wheel and a 12,3" digital instrument cluster. The 8" colour touchscreen display with car connectivity through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth allows using a smartphone to get directions on the move.
There are also stylish piano key-type toggles to control the display to access the correct function on the touchscreen with the press of a single button.
The 3008 1,2-litre Active has an overall feeling of space. The extended wheelbase improves on legroom and the raised ride height means more headroom for all.
The boot will swallow 591 litres with the rear seats up and 1 670 litres when the seats are folded flat.
The Active gets a handy fold-flat front passenger seat and with 60/40 split rear seats and a boot floor that can be raised and lowered, it has enough space for every occasion.
The 3008 1,2-litre Active is also greener and more fuel efficient than ever before. Peugeot tells us the three-cylinder engine is punchy with more than enough torque to get up to speed without labouring. Linked to a six-speed manual gearbox, the 1,2-litre Active has effortless ratios that allow for relaxed cruising. It is easy to drive around town.
The vehicle is impressively quiet and civilised on the open road.
Peugeot's trademark sporty steering wheel is light and precise, nicely weighted and easily manoeuvrable. The 1 270kg kerb weight means you should experience excellent fuel economy too.
Standard safety features on the 1,2-litre Active include: six airbags, ABS with EBD, emergency brake assist, traction control, dynamic stability control and electronic stability programmes.
Other advanced systems are: road sign detection, driver attention alert, lane departure warning, driver attention fatigue warning and ISOFIX child seat mounts - all as standard.
Comfort and convenience features include cruise control and hill assist.
The Limited Edition 3008 1,2-litre Active offers a more affordable and economical option, without compromising on the quality and specifications the rest of the range has to offer.
